Sunday: Polis to Hold Community Conversation in Boulder

Congressman Jared Polis (D-CO 2nd District)

Boulder, Colo. – Congressman Jared Polis (D-Colo.) will host a community conversation at Boulder Jewish Community Center this Sunday. The conversation will begin with community leaders discussing services and support they provide locally, followed by a discussion and Q&A with Rep. Polis.

“Though the presidential election result has caused uncertainty and grief, as a community we must continue to move toward an inclusive environment that is both accepting and safe for everyone,” Polis said. “I look forward to hearing from Coloradans on ways we can continue to structure our community around safety, acceptance, and respect.” 

WHO:  U.S. Representative Jared Polis, Representatives from the Boulder City Council, One Colorado, Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, Boulder County Commissioners, and residents of Boulder County

WHAT:  Community Conversation

WHEN:  Sunday, Dec. 18, 2016, 1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. MT

WHERE:  Boulder Jewish Community Center, 6007 Oreg Ave, Boulder, CO

Polis has been a leader on putting a stop to discrimination in all it’s forms and fixing our broken immigration system. In October 2013, he introduced the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act, a comprehensive immigration reform bill that would have improved national security, streamlined our country’s guest worker system, and created a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented individuals. In June 2015, Polis helped introduce the Equality Act, a bill that brings the protections afforded to LGBT Americans into parity with those afforded to members of other protected groups who face discrimination based on race, gender, religion, or national origin.
